Limitation or Adapt?

How do you see challenges when they arise? When faced with a monster task, is the first thought ‘No Way’ or How?

It dawned on me reflecting back when I first got a gym membership – when I did the notorious intro tour (here’s the cardio area, machines, free weights etc) I took the view of focusing on the things I couldn’t do at the time – can’t do that, unable to this, I’ll stick with what I know…etc

Yes, after a couple of years curiosity gets the better of you and you try all the equipment, leading to questions why you didn’t do it in the first place. Yes, I have a disability and learnt adapt around things – however – EVERYBODY is in the same boat, some will find different challenges harder than overs, it’s completely natural.

My point is this – Everyone will have their own way of looking at what’s in front of them, how you set the limit or how you adapt and get around – that lies within you.

I can’t do push ups…well…enough…yet. I will do it in 5 weeks, by the end of my current training plan…in my style! 😀

All the best folks

Bringing you the latest in not only my personal journal into the world of disability Bodybuilding, but a discovery into latest events, profiles, news and promoting awareness of this great sport Based in Bristol in the UK, I’ve been competing in Disability Bodybuilding for the last 3 years in a journey which has taken me all over the country to national, international & world championships and I am so so grateful for that opportunity that had changed my life. Living with Cerebal Palsy has its challenges, but everyone has their individual hurdles to negotiate. Gaining strength both physically & mentally and adapting to the surrounding is all part of this journey. This is a mission to raise awareness, to promote our great category to develop opportunities for others. Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss more!
